unique fishing community. Due to the size of the lake and changing environments
There are 31 fish species in Vättern. In the northern Vättern spreads

bays. At the far north - in Alsen, south of Askersund - is Vättern

"You are not wise, you are fishing
drinking water! "

A Japanese business traveler visiting Sweden was so surprised that
he just yanked when the fishing guide on the boat bent and drank
a scoop of Vättern's clean water. A small basin in
relative to the lake's large surface and water depth (128 meters as
deepest) makes Vättern a nutrient-poor lake with great visibility
and cold, clean and oxygen-rich water. Therefore, many of Vätterns are
characteristic fish species - eg. char, grayling and trout - species
which usually occurs further north. Whitefish, broccoli and nut
are also those in need of great depth and good oxygen levels and are typical
species for the lake.

Vätterrödingen - Sweden's most valuable
fish stocks!

No species is equally associated with Vättern as the big red, one
of the world's most beautiful fish species. To witness rowing game on shallow
water in late autumn is an experience out of the ordinary. Visit
for example, Huskvarna harbor at the end of October. Char males
in their heavily colored play suits patrol the playgrounds
and often stroke past near land. Besides being one
Delight for the eye it tastes amazing and having one on the hook is
many fishermen's dream. Since 2004 there are three areas in Vättern
where fishing (as well as on crayfish fishing) is completely prohibited. The ban
comprises about 15% of Vättern's total area and was added
followed by increasingly poor fishing for char and whitefish. The fishing ban has in
Combined with other measures contributed to the char stock
recently recovered.

The world's largest trout?
Originally there were two strains of trout in Vättern - an upstream game
and a downstream play. In the early 1900s
hydroelectric power station was built in Motala stream which meant that
the downstream walking tour, formerly called Vätterlax,
could no longer reach their former playgrounds in Vättern's outlet. One
of the world's largest adult trout strains were thus lost.
Since the 1970s salmon have been planted in Vättern to compensate for the fishery
after the great trout.

The trout and the action work
During the autumn, the trout seek out upstream watercourses
to play, but in most streams the migration is prevented by different
types of dam buildings. In recent years, therefore, has
an intensive action work has been undertaken to improve the trout's situation.
In many rivers, obstacles have been addressed and fish roads have been built.
Trout has now become an increasingly common catch in Vättern, both for
fishermen and anglers.

Sweden's southernmost grayling population
In Vättern, Sweden's southernmost grayling population is found. Often moves
their beach near shallow water in their hunt for food. During the spring
plays them in the lower parts of the running watercourses
and in some current places in the lake. Vättern's grayling population has
in recent years has declined sharply. Due to the grayling population
studies have begun and restrictions have begun
introduced to limit fishing for grayling.

Many go a long way to get out on Vättern and wander around
salmon, trout and char. There are several boat ramps around the lake (see
map). Often you fish with the maximum allowed 10 baits behind

Winter fishing from shore
If you are not able to fish from a boat, land fishing can be
an alternative, especially during the colder months of the year. Then stir
often salmon, trout and char shallow and close land. Land fishing is
effective with coastal vibes and narrow spoons or with tube fly
and throw flow.

Spring fishing for "crocodiles"
In the early spring, anglers from all over Sweden gather in Vätterns
northern archipelago. The chance to catch their life's pike is then there

(19.3 kg) was taken in northern Vättern in 1999. Trolling is the most
use the method in the hunt for the old pike, even if spin fishing
with larger baits such as jerkbaits become increasingly popular in recent years.

Sunny summer fishing
In summer, land or boat fishing, especially after perch,
be nice. Look for places near ports or there
there is aquatic growth and foundation. Places where rivers flow
can also be interesting (just be aware of some such places
are protected in the spring when they play toys). Try with spinners, jig,
or a classic mask.
